I wore this outfit the other day and my friend was like, “I LOVE THAT! I would have NEVER thought to put that together.” To me, that was a HUGE outfit success. Y’all know how much I LOVE fashion. I love what a good outfit can do to your self-esteem, your mood, your day, etc. Fashion sends a message. It tells people, without using words, what you want to convey about yourself.
But the fact is, sometimes I think people take fashion way too seriously. I especially see it in the blogging community… and I’m definitely guilty of this… taking way too much time to obsess over whether an outfit is “perfect” and “blogable” and “Instagrammable” and “#allfothethings.”
You guys, it’s not that serious. If an outfit works, AWESOME. If it doesn’t, don’t stress about it. You can CHANGE CLOTHES. You can take it off. You can never wear that outfit again. Fashion is not a tattoo. An outfit is not permanent.
So, TRY something different. Try something fun. Pair different patterns together… throw on a bold color… wear a long vest with shorts… twirl in the street (or don’t… haha)… Have FUN with it. Fashion should be FUN. It should be a way to stretch your creative juices.
Have fun. Make yourself smile. And if it doesn’t work… don’t stress about it… wear something different tomorrow.
What about you? Do you take fashion “risks” for the heck of it? What thing about fashion is most fun for you? Or is it all just miserable? Haha!
